(BLOOMBERG) — A former personal assistant to Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer David Solomon killed himself on the afternoon he was to plead guilty to stealing more than $1 million in rare wine from his former boss.

Nicolas De-Meyer, 41, jumped from his room on the 33rd floor of the Carlyle Hotel on East 76th Street around 2:30 pm Tuesday, New York City police said — the exact time he was scheduled to plead guilty in federal court in Manhattan to interstate transportation of stolen property in connection with the theft.

De-Meyer, who worked for Solomon from 2008 until November 2016, was accused of stealing hundreds of bottles — including seven of a vintage considered among the rarest and most expensive in the world — worth a total of about $1.2 million. De-Meyer then allegedly resold them.
